Reasons to Invest

Positioned to disrupt the $2.8 trillion annual steel and concrete corrosion market.
Ceramic coating that cures at room temperature, no kiln needed, applied like standard paints.
A "green infrastructure" solution for climate change resilience.

OVERVIEW


Our Technology Permanently Protects Steel and Concrete Infrastructure


Zirconia solves critical problems in water and food infrastructure globally, using the unique nature of our green-tech nano-ceramic coatings which repair, strengthen and preserve concrete and steel infrastructure.



Our revolutionary technology can make infrastructure made of concrete and steel virtually immortal.  


We have invented a ceramic coating that reacts with the surface of concrete and steel, encapsulating them in an ultra-durable, inert surface, all at room temperature. 


The Zirconia Difference

THE PROBLEM


America's Drinking Water Infrastructure is Failing

The USA wastes 15.4% of purified water through cracked and deteriorated water pipes and reservoirs, enough water to supply 60 million homes daily. Water infrastructure suffers from long-term neglect and a lack of investment in long-term solutions. And, until now, no durable solutions have been available.


Concrete is used throughout the water holding and transport systems, but it is chemically unstable and very porous. Like a sponge, it absorbs contaminants, then cracks, corrodes, and dissolves.


This problem is made worse by the chlorine used to sanitize our drinking water. Chlorine dissolves concrete and corrodes steel reinforcement, slowly destroying the water pipes and storage tanks. 


Worse yet, this porosity absorbs food and water and creates habitat for bacteria and other unwanted microbial life. The ceilings and floors at our food producers are filled with bacteria and mold, which too often ends up in our food.


THE SOLUTION


Our Technology Strengthens, Protects, and Preserves Concrete with our Innovative, Patented Industrial Ceramic Coating 


Zirconia’s Ceramic Surface Treatment consists of a water-based ceramic “paint” (a patented mix of alumina and zirconia silicates) to renew, strengthen, and preserve concrete by eliminating inherent weaknesses and by stabilizing the surface. 



Our Ceramic Surface Treatment forms a barrier layer that eliminates all surface porosity and chemically stabilizes the concrete. Chemical instability and porosity are the root causes of concrete asset failure. Our technology eliminates these failure pathways, giving the concrete an indefinite lifespan.  


The resulting ceramic surface is not affected by environmental weathering and is immune to ultraviolet light, salts, and microbial decay. 


Zirconia’s elimination of porosity (microbial habitat), along with the natural antimicrobial characteristics of our coating, means reductions of harmful bacteria in our food and water supply. 


This is the critical solution Food and Water infrastructure need to preserve public health.



To start, Zirconia is focusing on the following applications in the US and UK:

  • Water infrastructure for fresh water including concrete pipe and large municipal tank applications
  • Stormwater, and sanitary sewer applications
  • Floor, wall, and ceiling coating for food manufacturing and food storage
  • Floor, wall, and ceiling coating for animal husbandry and animal processing 

THE MARKET


A Revolutionary Product Applicable Across Multiple Massive Markets


Zirconia addresses the global $2.8 trillion-dollar concrete and steel corrosion problem, with the first coating system that solves corrosion.


Our technology has direct applications in the $1.8 billion food manufacturing and protein market, the $3.5 billion commercial construction market, and the $14 billion infrastructure market.  


Total Addressable Market (TAM)


Current technology is failing us...


Our competition is low functioning, engineered-to-fail technology (epoxy, polyurethane) that was invented in the 1950s and has not substantially improved since. 


Organic coatings such as epoxy and polyurethane cannot permanently treat inorganic surfaces like concrete and steel. They only stick temporarily, then peel off, leaving the concrete more vulnerable than before. This allows infrastructure to decay to the point of collapse, causing the loss of our freshwater resource, and allowing our food supply to be infected with pathogens.




As far as we know, we are the only company to develop an inorganic coating to protect an inorganic surface, giving us a monopoly on our Ceramic Surface Treatment technology.  

OUR TRACTION


Patented Technology and Enthusiastic Adoption


Our Ceramic Surface Treatment for concrete (CeramycGuard) and steel (GeoPrimer) were finalized in late 2018. Our scientific breakthrough is patented, and we have three patents pending for new products for additional markets that build on the first patent, which were filed in May 2020.  


Sales began in early 2019 with small proof of concept projects. Several of these opportunities have now resulted in repeat business.


By 2021 we have landed major opportunities like Tyson Foods, the largest poultry producer in the USA, and Stantec, the world’s 3rd largest water infrastructure engineering firm.



In January 2020, Zirconia’s Ceramic Surface Treatment (CST) technology became part of the global Platinum Brooding Standard for raising broiler chickens without antibiotics or hormones.


In March 2020, Zirconia was selected as the concrete restoration technology winner of the Yorkshire Water District’s Asset Management Plan. 


As of May 2021, Zirconia has successfully passed the first phase of laboratory testing for WRAS Approval (Water Regulations Advisory Scheme Ltd, UK), for use in freshwater systems. We are now approved for water fittings and applications in drinking water plumbing in the UK. 


Currently we are moving to the second and final phase of review by the Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI) for freshwater infrastructure. 



WHY INVEST


Building Better Infrastructure for a Sustainable Future


Our goal is to make our technology available to people around the world for water and food infrastructure in both new construction and renovation markets.


We also have a pipeline of new patent-pending, eco-friendly coating products that we will be strategically introducing to new markets, including:

 

1. CoolColors solar reflective Ceramic Surface Treatment, which cools buildings reducing the need for electricity from burning fossil fuels, reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

 

2. GeoPrimer Ceramic Surface Treatment for steel that solves corrosion. This technology strengthens, protects, and preserves bridges and heavy infrastructure.

 

3. GalvaGlass Ceramic Surface Treatment coatings for galvanized steel that solves corrosion. This technology strengthens, protects, and preserves electric grid infrastructure.


We will continue to develop other related new technologies for infrastructure that lead to reduced pollution, lowered greenhouse gas emissions and increased climate change resilience.

 

We will revolutionize a $2.8 trillion market with our monopoly of ceramic surface treatments, which creates a new healthier standard for food and water infrastructure. 


Climate Impact


Zirconia's Ceramic Surface Treatments extend the lifespan of concrete and steel infrastructure significantly, reducing the need to remanufacture and remake concrete and steel structures, which cumulatively emit 18% of global climate change gases.

 

By preserving infrastructure, we are converting existing fragile, short-lived, run-to-failure infrastructure into durable, long-lived, Green Infrastructure that has a much lower impact on our environment.  In general, our technologies improve durability and functionality, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and other pollution, making infrastructure more sustainable.





Why does "Green Infrastructure" matter? Because, we are preserving more than concrete, we are preserving our limited natural resources, the environment, and our health.  


Help us strengthen, protect and preserve the world’s infrastructure by making our green technology the standard for concrete coatings.

Zirconia: Solving Salt Corrosion.

2 months ago

Zirconia Community,


The collapse of the Surfside condominium in Florida was a big story in the news cycle, but really only a small part of the larger story about the failure of planning, maintenance, and materials science. This is also a great example of how better materials science improves environmental and social sustainability.


In Florida, many residents, including a vast number of lower income elderly residents, live in condominiums near the beach.  The weather is warm, sunny, and wonderful, great for seniors and warm weather vacationers. Florida has over 1.5 million condominium units, mostly made of concrete, and mostly within two miles of the ocean beach, enjoying that warm ocean breeze.


However, the salty air from an evaporating warm ocean is a relentless corroder of concrete and steel, especially within the first two miles from the ocean, where airborne salts are more concentrated. In fact, warm, moist salty air is a relentless destroyer of all types of concrete structures, residential, commercial and infrastructure.


There has never been a good solution for the aggressive salt corrosion attacking concrete condominiums in Florida.  And, while the primary condominium buildings are corroding, their associated structures, like parking garages and pools are also being eaten away.  Bridges, roads, and other municipal infrastructure suffer this same fate. The cost to fix the salt corrosion problem once it has advanced, is extreme.  So, there is economic and social harm happening here, as many seniors cannot afford repair bills of tens of thousands of dollars. And, to be clear, the savings of many seniors is wrapped up in their home, so losing the value of this investment in later years can be devastating.


Many of these condominium structures were built in the 70's, 80's and 90's so they are already reaching the age where the history of maintenance, or the lack thereof, becomes readily and sometimes painfully apparent.  Miami Dade and two other counties now require 30-year and 40-year engineering reports verifying fitness of the structure, and every 10 year afterwards.  After the Surfside condominium collapse, due in part to lack of maintenance, many condominium owners are considering more stringent inspections and greater attention to maintenance and repairs, which had been lax in the past.  Certainly, ignoring this problem will not make it go away.  There are a large number of condominium structures that have existing damage that need restoration and preservation work performed immediately.  But, the sheer volume of these repairs will take decades to complete.


Why is salt a problem?  Because, salt is like a chemical crowbar that levers and breaks concrete apart millimeter by millimeter. Salt, which is sodium chloride, liquifies in the presence of moisture or humidity then recrystallizes and expands within the concrete. This dissolving and expanding cycle continues indefinitely, once salt enters the concrete, causing concrete to crack deeper and deeper.  Salt also attacks the cement binder chemistry of concrete, causing it to erode, which also allows the salt to penetrate deeper.  Each millimeter of cracking and erosion allow the salt to penetrate deeper and continue eating the concrete away, in a relentlessly destructive reinforcing cycle.  As the salt corrosion reaches the structurally reinforcing steel, salts accelerate steel corrosion, which rusts and  expands (spalls), losing its structural strength.


The unfortunate result of this salt corrosion behavior is reduced structural strength, until one day the concrete and reinforcing steel crumbles. Generally, the only way to stop this salt corrosion behavior is to stop it from entering the concrete in the first place. This would require some type of salt barrier, which did not exist until now.


Making matters worse, current technology does not work: Epoxies and other film-forming coatings are just adhering (temporarily sticking) to the concrete surfaces, rather than actually chemically bonding with the concrete. This means moisture can intrude, causing coating film delamination failures in elevated concrete where moisture can get to the coating from underneath, and where thermal changes accelerate film delamination. Film-forming coatings (epoxies, polyurethanes) are also destroyed by UV light from sunshine, and simply cannot provide the durability or reliability necessary for protecting concrete from salt, water, and weathering.


About CeramycGuardTM, a Ceramic Surface Treatment


To solve the salt corrosion problem, engineers, architects, and builders have been looking for better building technology and they are finding it with Zirconia's family of salt and waterproofing technologies.  Zirconia's restoration happens in three parts:


1. Before applying CeramycGuardTM, we use a special nano-scale solution of colloidal silica that penetrates deep into concrete forming a natural cement gel, which either pushes salt out of the concrete, or encapsulates it, locking down any residual salts in this zone and preventing further harm.  This protects both the concrete and the structural steel.


2. We then apply our CeramycGuardTM coating, our main nano-ceramic technology that uses alumina and zirconia silicates to strengthen, preserve and protect concrete surfaces. This dense nano-ceramic polymer penetrates and atomically bonds to all available elements in the concrete, shielding the surface from salts, water, and weathering. CeramycGuard is not affected by salt, heat, humidity, wet/dry cycles, or ultraviolet light from sunshine.  It fills the surface, including the pores where salt enters, rebonds the concrete, fills and repairs cracks, and generally stabilizes and protects the concrete surface.  


3. For the final topcoat seal, we may also use QuartzSealTM or our new ComposiCoatTM BP ceramic-organic hybrid technology, which forms a super tough composite with the CeramycGuardTM.  ComposiCoat BPTM is ultra-durable, chemical and wear resistant, so great for parking garages and other areas needing a durable wear layer.


Both the general contractor we are working with, and their clients in the Miami area, are pleased to have a reliable salt and waterproofing system that is based on green chemistry (water-based, and green solvent-based) and does not fill the air with toxic hazardous solvents. This is great for the health of workers, and respects elderly residents. 


Finally, better material science makes a difference here in terms of social impact. We are proud that our technology can be used to restore and preserve the condominium homes of many poor elderly residents, who deserve to have their golden years devoid of expensive corrosion related repairs. These expenses fall hardest on those without the means to pay, so better to keep our most vulnerable seniors safe and happy in their homes.

We Are Zirconia, and This Is Our Story.

2 months ago


Zirconia Community,


When I first applied to college, I had originally wanted to be a Pediatric Doctor. Then, I made it into UC Berkeley's Environmental program where I began studying environmental science and researching environment problems around the world. This is when my inspiration to become a doctor changed.


The more I studied about environmental pollution and toxicity generated from industry and agriculture, the more I saw how these issues affected children, leading to a variety of illnesses, making children sick on a local and global scale.


One summer, I worked at Oakland Children's Hospital as an Emergency Room volunteer. A major concern then and now, was toxic lead contamination from leaded paint, gasoline, and industrial sources that had poisoned soils around many older family homes where children played. As I comforted the children that lay sick in their bed, many of them children of color, and from poor backgrounds, I always wondered why adults allowed these children to be poisoned by their immediate environment.


At Berkeley, I worked on reducing "Dirty Dozen" pesticide exposures in agriculture, developing antibody tests for pesticides that prevented migrant women and children from entering farm fields with high levels of toxic pesticides. The stories of children exposed to these toxins were brutal. 


I also researched how toxic industrial chemicals in construction materials lead to cancer and other health problems for workers and occupants alike.  And, I took classes in Ecology, which included studies of industrial pollution, including greenhouse gas emissions which were creating climate change, and the environmental and human health costs it would eventually bring. 


Overall, I wondered how the government and industry had become so insanely disrespectful of the lives of children, and our shared environment. In my mind at that time, it didn't make sense to see kids get exposed to all the sources of pollution and toxicity, then treat them after they were already sick. Why not eliminate the toxins in the first place, and keep children safe?


At this same time, "green" industrial technologies began to emerge, greener chemistries and processes that substituted for the older more toxic ones. It was the beginning of a steady green-tech revolution that would only grow. I realized this process of green technology "substitution" could be used to reduce industrial toxicity. And, I realized more education was needed to change minds.


I also realized that many farmers and construction folks were doing their best, inside the system of tools and technologies they were accustomed to.  Sure, better solutions needed to be created, but to be effective, they also needed to be introduced in a manner industry understood.


At this time, I think I became a "green-technologist" and decided to leverage technology and science education to reduce toxicity and solve ecological problems, rather than enter the medical field. Also, at this time, I became a serial entrepreneur in order to create new businesses to push green technology into the market, and push toxic products out. In the process, I also earned an MBA in this nation's first Sustainable Business program at Pinchot University. 


I have been building green tech businesses ever since graduating UC Berkeley in 1993. I built an environmental laboratory to prevent contamination and worker exposure in construction, and I built the Seattle areas' largest green building program at a local hardware chain. I also built an infrastructure restoration company, GeoTree Technologies, that created a new green cement and process that restores water and sewer infrastructure underground, without digging up the road, generating only half the CO2 of conventional repair. And, I continue to work in green Ag tech, to promote more restorative agriculture, and reduce the use of toxic pesticides.


My latest business, Zirconia Inc., is leading the charge for more sustainable infrastructure, with green tech advances in industrial coatings which directly target the elimination of volatile organics and toxic products like epoxies, with a new green tech nano-ceramic coating technology.


At Zirconia we are making special water-borne ceramic coatings, like CeramycGuardTM, that dramatically increases the durability of concrete infrastructure, while lowering the financial and ecological costs of current infrastructure on future generations, including dramatically reducing greenhouse gasses.


I have chosen to lead the charge in green technology in infrastructure because Infrastructure affects all our lives, and our shared environment in a big way. Yet, there are too few advocates that focus on materials science, which is critical to making any real global scale change.


To support us in preserving our infrastructure and improving the quality of our life, I encourage you to invest in the revolutionary green technology at Zirconia on StartEngine today. 



Warmly,

Benjamin Cook

CeramycGuard™️ Tech is Key for Water Infrastructure.

3 months ago


Zirconia Community, 


Concrete water infrastructure suffers from decay and disintegration due to the addition of chlorine for sanitation. Chlorine attacks the interior lining of large concrete storage tanks and weakens, pits and chemically erodes the concrete. This is where Zirconia's CeramycGuard™️ technology can assist in delivering a necessary solution.


CeramycGuard™️ renews, strengthens and preserves concrete surfaces using alumina and zirconia silicates. It penetrates into all voids and atomically bonds to all elements in the concrete, creating a dense, ultra-durable surface. Because CeramycGuard™️ acts an inorganic glue, it seals cracks and pitting caused by chlorine, therefore healing the damaged surface.


CeramycGuard™️ creates a surface protection that naturally resists the break down of concrete that protects our precious freshwater resources. We provided pictures below for your convenience.

Since our CeramycGuard™️ is molecularly bonded, it eliminates the risk of peeling, chalking, or delamination in any matter. When used outdoors, our technology is not affecting by wet and dry, or freeze and thaw cycles. Also, the biologically impervious nature of our CeramycGuard™️ technology does not allow bacteria, algae, or other biological life to find habitat and grow within the surface of concrete.


Image B above shows how CeramycGuard™️ durably seals the surface of the concrete, eliminating porosity and stopping the growth of algae.

Ray’s Infused Lemonade Project.

3 months ago


Zirconia Community,


The epoxy floor installed at Ray’s Infused Lemonade began to fail 3 months after installation, and completely needed replacement by 6 months. This is a common problem with epoxy, which is not chemically bonded to concrete and can lose its temporary adhesion bond and peel from the concrete, as in this case. Ray’s makes a variety of fruity THC infused lemonades. All the water and cleaning detergents, along with the acids and sugars in the fruit concentrate, are a problem for outdated, toxic floor coatings like epoxies and urethanes.

This is where Zirconia comes in. After installing our chemically bonded ComposiCoat™️ XD nano-ceramic coating system, the floor is still performing perfectly a year later. The facilities manager is impressed with the performance of the new system and with the way it was installed. He “does not ever expect it to peel or fail like his epoxy flooring in the plant". There are current plans for new plants and additions that have specified the ComposiCoat™ XD ceramic coating system for their flooring on these projects.

Watch Zirconia’s 2022 Roadmap Webinar Recap!

3 months ago



Zirconia Community,


In case you missed our webinar, we’ve provided a link for you to watch our recap video at your earliest convenience.


We’ve also highlighted some of the important topics that were discussed directly in this update.


Thank you for your support. We hope to see you at the next event!

What is Zirconia’s Mission?


“The construction industry has seen the same coating technologies since the 1960s, and they are failing us as a result, a water main breaks in the US every two minutes. And this year America's civil engineers gave America's infrastructure a C-. 


Trillions of dollars are wasted on repairing concrete and steel, and what's more, current coating technologies allow dangerous microbial pathogens to live in concrete and enter our food and water supply. We need a change for a safer, more stable infrastructure. 


Today you can invest in one of the companies leading the charge. At Zirconia, we create ceramic coatings that stabilize the surface of concrete and steel, making them virtually immortal. It's an affordable and antimicrobial solution that has no current alternatives.”

What Markets Are You Addressing?


“Everything we're doing is market focused. We're a market driven company. We're looking at a number of industries. We're talking with food industry people. We've had projects done with meat packing plants, cherry plants, and a wide variety of things in that area.


 Waterproofing is another segment of the market. Again, that breaks out to different groups, but it's a major area within commercial construction. Wastewater is a major concern for us. It's a place where we can have a very big impact and we're starting to reach out to people in that area. 


Agriculture is something we've also spent time in. We really want to look at our food chain and we thought going back to the level where the food is actually being produced, getting a stronger infrastructure within that market to provide healthier food services, and food products coming out of their services is all something we want to focus on.” 

What is Zirconia’s Strategy?


“One interesting thing that's happened in about the last six months or so, which everyone I'm sure is very familiar with at this point, are supply chain issues and shortages on materials. 


We are lucky in that our coatings, especially our CeramycGuard™️ is made here in the United States. We're not importing any materials. Everything is coming here locally. 


We've had to deal with some minor supply chain issues, but we are still able to produce our product on time for the customer. This is a really important point because these typical epoxy systems or urethane systems are actually just not available. We've heard from our customers saying that our competitor has an eight or twelve week lead time, or they may not even know when the product is coming.”

Join Zirconia as an Early Investor on StartEngine!


After watching our full webinar recap, we hope you will consider choosing Zirconia as your next investment opportunity.


To join our community of 300+ early shareholders, simply visit our StartEngine raise page and invest for as little as $200.00 today.


If you have any questions still left unanswered, please feel free to write to us in the comments section of our raise page. We will be more than happy to address them for you!


Thank you for your support and belief in our mission. We look forward to achieving many milestones with you as we continue our crowdfunding journey.

Green Zirconia Technology vs. Outdated Toxic Epoxy.

3 months ago


Zirconia Community,


At Zirconia, we are dedicated to providing cutting-edge coating solutions for critical concrete infrastructure problems facing the built environment. Coating concrete floors in industrial markets is one of these problems. Without proper coatings, concrete chemically erodes away, leaving a slippery, infected, and dangerous surface.

 

Zirconia's proprietary nano-ceramic concrete floor coatings provide a durable non-slip, chemical resistant wear surface, preventing concrete corrosion damage much better than outdated, toxic epoxy products.

 

In today’s update, I am going to cover the problems with Epoxy and how Zirconia’s revolutionary technologies create a more durable, long-lasting solution.

The Epoxy Problem

Concrete requires coatings to prevent decay, extend lifespan and create a cleanable surface.  Current coating technologies are toxic and made to fail, requiring regular expensive repairs and replacement. When these concrete coatings fail, concrete becomes pitted, stained, and impossible to clean, creating problems with slip/fall safety, hygiene, and microbial infection, and creating other liabilities.

The main reason for this is that concrete is extremely porous. It absorbs water, industrial chemicals, dirt, and simply dissolves. It also provides a home (habitat) for bacteria and other microorganisms that thrive in porous environments, creating biological hazards.

 

Current technologies that are supposed to help, such as epoxy, can’t chemically bond to concrete, and therefore, can't provide durable protection. Such coatings can only grab onto the surface mechanically or stick temporarily, then this weak "adhesion bonding" breaks down and the coating peels away, leaving the concrete vulnerable to degradation. One of the key causes of failure is the moisture that is present in the concrete trying to come out. Once a scratch in the coating occurs, more moisture gets in and the coating starts peeling off.

Zirconia’s Green Tech Ceramic Solution

Zirconia’s CeramycGuard™ technology is a more sustainable coating alternative for concrete surfaces. This technology chemically bonds with the concrete forming an ultra-durable protective layer, creating a base layer for our other concrete coating systems.

 

This nano-ceramic solution cures at room temperature (eliminating the need for high temperature curing). Also, CeramycGuard™ is non-toxic, making it safe for applications in occupied facilities.

 

Over the CeramycGuard™ ceramic base layer we use a nano-ceramic cross-linking layer, followed by our  ComposiCoatTM XD high solids, low VOC urethane to form our ComposiCoatTM system.

 

This ultra-durable 3-layer system is atomically bonded through all layers with the concrete, creating the world's first chemically bonded, composite floor coating system. This coating system sets the highest standard for non-slip, chemical and wear resistance and is also Biologically ImperviousTM to microbial life, preventing biological hazards from forming.

 

This technology makes industrial settings cleaner, safer and less toxic, and also lowers the cost of maintenance dramatically. This technology gives industrial facility managers around the world the durable epoxy alternative they have been waiting for.

Invest in Zirconia on StartEngine

Our executive team hopes that you will consider Zirconia as your next investment opportunity.

 

We are currently raising capital via StartEngine’s equity crowdfunding platform, and we need the support of our community.

Zirconia’s Revolutionary QSD Wood Treatment.

4 months ago

Zirconia Community,


We have officially launched our ceramic-organic hybrid coating technology QuartzSeal Defense (QSD) Wood Treatment for improving hygiene and Biosecurity in chicken and turkey protein production, a Billion-dollar market.

 

This technology fills in the pores at the plywood surface, creating a more cleanable, sealed, non-permeable surface, eliminating bacterial habitat.  QSD Wood Treatment has nano-sword antimicrobial technology that fights unwanted bacterial growth, biofilm formation, and wood rot, while also substantially reducing the cost of cleaning and disinfection.

 

The QSD Wood Treatment is fast and easy to apply, and cost effective for farmers. This Teflon-like, dirt and moisture resistant technology makes QSD Wood Treatment an extremely effective alternative to other low-functioning products on the market.

 

Overall, improved hygiene helps eliminate the need for antibiotics in the poultry supply and preserve both animal and human health over the long term.

 

We’ve attached some photos of our product bringing better Biosecurity to a recent 18,000 square foot wood-surfaced poultry barn project in British Columbia, Canada directly in this email.

Watch a Recording of Zirconia's Investor Q&A Webinar

5 months ago


Zirconia Community,

If you missed last week's webinar here's a recording of the webinar for your convenience. We've also highlighted some of the important questions that were addressed directly in this email.

Also, don’t forget to download our free webinar deck from this event so you can reference later!

We hope to see you at the next event!

What’s Zirconia’s Mission?

Benjamin Cook: “We make food and water infrastructure less toxic, safer, better performing and more durable. Zirconia is a material science and technology company. We make nano-ceramic coatings for sustainable infrastructure.

Our ceramics surface treatment technology is exceptional. It is the first ceramic coating that chemically bonds and cures at room temperature. No kiln needed. This is a result of some very special nanoscale science.

It is impervious to heat, cold, water, salt, and ultraviolet light. Bacteria and viruses cannot survive on its surface. This is important because of the way that we live our lives and how we interact with infrastructure.”

What’s the Value Driven Nature of Zirconia’s Tech?

Donald Hamm: “One of the beauties with presenting this and bringing this to our customers is, we're not just bringing them new technology, and we're not bringing them this ultimate solution that is unattainable and too expensive to be valuable and useful for the market.

What we're finding with what we're doing is bringing a true value driven product. As one of our contractors and sales teams says, we don't sell it as the cheapest or the most expensive. We sell it as the most valuable system and the best value.

We reduce labor costs often 50% or more compared to traditional (coatings), because there's less preparation needed. Our product can go on wet concrete. Everybody else has to have it dehumidified, which can take days and weeks. ”

Have the Coatings Been Tested by Outside Companies?

Muralee Balaguru: “Yes, we've done numerous tests. We've had a wide variety of independent testing done with our slip resistance, and on the antimicrobial aspect of our coatings.

On our steel coding we've had independent corrosion testing as well. We would be more than happy to share that data with anyone who's willing to see, as it is a very technical explanation.”

Zirconia is Environmentally Friendly! 🌎

6 months ago


Zirconia Community, 


As a mission driven, green tech company, our environmental initiatives are built into everything we do. We have a clear goal: to make the built environment more sustainable and less toxic.


Zirconia makes positive environmental impacts in the following ways:


Reducing Greenhouse Gases & Preserving Old and New Infrastructure Indefinitely - Our coating’s create multiple paths to large-scale greenhouse gases reductions. Zirconia’s coating technologies dramatically increase the durability and lifespan of concrete and steel used to build major infrastructure, reducing the need to remake and replace these materials, which are greenhouse gas (GHG) expensive.  Concrete and steel generate approximately 18% of the global GHG total, so it's important to maintain the infrastructure we have once it is built. 

 

Reducing Toxicity to the Environment - We believe in the power of green chemistry to create products and processes that make the built environment more sustainable. We push the boundaries of green chemistry to make our coatings less toxic, while improving performance characteristics and longevity.


Reducing Toxicity to the Employees and Workers - Traditional coatings have higher levels of toxicity. Zirconia’s mission is to focus on environmental and human health, always looking for the green chemistry pathway to provide better coating performance without exposing employees or workers to hazardous materials.  Our primary technology is water borne, while others use green solvents, or reduced solvents.


Reducing Life Cycle Impact-  The improved durability, performance and lifespan of our coatings reduces the amount of maintenance, including reducing hazardous, toxic chemicals used for cleaning buildings. This lowers the environmental impact of operations and maintenance, while also reducing costs.


The Power of Substitution - We focus on substituting our green coating technology for outdated, toxic, low performing technologies like epoxy. Our industrial coatings substantially outperform traditional coatings in terms of performance, durability, and low toxicity.


Future Green Chemistry - Zirconia has engineered a heat reflective coating that reflects 98% of solar energy off of the surface of buildings, cooling them dramatically.  This type of passive air conditioning will cool buildings way down and reduce the need for electricity draw for air conditioning significantly, reducing the need to burn fossil fuels, and therefore reducing CO2 emissions significantly.

 

Zirconia is a subject matter specialist when it comes to improving sustainability in the built environment.

 

When you invest in Zirconia, you invest in an environmentally conscious company which is creating hope for a more sustainable future.
